I wish I knew where I could buy a parasol like the one Regina used. It's beautiful!!
GREATEST EPISODE TO DATE!!! And the best part about it was that it actually pushed the story forward. Rumpel always makes for an amazing episode.
I just hate how evil the queen is she is so irritating!! I jus want to kill her she tortured each n every person yet still eveything hoes as she wants i just hate it!!
I hope emma n mr gold does smethng n kill tht bitch!
This is such a great series; I thoroughly enjoyed this episode.
Love the new takes on the old tales.
I'm presuming Belle was still alive in FairyTale Land as when the curse was released 28 years prior everyone was transported to Storybrooke. Evil Queen was obviously just winding Rumple up even then. Surprised he just took her word for it.
How is Emma along with true love going to break this curse? Interesting.
I would hope that there will be a sleeping beauty episode in the future, I'd like to see maleficent return at some point. Is she lurking in storybrooke somewhere?
Whoever was speculating how long they've been there, they 'left' the day Emma was born, so almost 30 years is my guess. Mr. Gold is going to end up helping Emma, or his favor is going to involve her finding belle for him. This story is not over by far.
Belle is Sleeping Beauty:
Sleeping Beauty (French: La Belle au bois dormant, "The Beauty in the sleeping wood")
I think the comment about true love's kiss breaking any curse tells us how EMMA is supposed to break the curse. Remember, Henry keeps saying she is the only one that can break it. If she is the only one that can break it, and curses get broken by true love's kiss, then obviously EMMA has to be the one to kiss someone. I have a suspicion that she is to fall in love with the writer (who may be Rump's son.) That is what I think is going to happen.
So Beauty and the Beast wasn't a french fairytale after all but CLEARLY Australian... hahhaha. As an Aussie I even find that weird.
I personally love the old fairytales and I loved how they made these old fairytales we all know seem to become possible. Beauty and the Beast never had any connection to the fairytale Rumpelstiltskin, Belle never married 'gaston' and her father was not by any means a king but a kooky inventor. I dunno.. they changed the fairytale before it even hit the 'real world'.
On a positive note, I did enjoy hearing Rumpelstiltskin remembers his past and of course seeing Cinderella and her prince (which is oh so, so good looking). Would love to see them have a 'fairytale' wedding forcing something the shift/change in the real world.
This show is fantastic!! Loved the reference to a 'mermaid' problem from the queen!! lol But I do wonder when she said true love's kiss could break any curse why it hasn't worked for mary/david?? I look forward to each show!! and we can't have it all wrapped up then where would the show be...done! I think that makes a show, questions, because it brings the viewer back wanting answers!! :o) Great Job OUAT
Easily one of the best, if not THE best episode of the season! LOVED the twist with Rumple as the beast and all the Disney nods. The emphasis that EVERY curse can be broken and that true loves kiss will do it, hmmm!
I personally think that Rumple will redeem himself in the end, though maybe in a "Gollum" sort of way.
Honestly the best part, for me, of the entire episode, was the Queen's reference to a problem with a mermaid!!! I've been waiting for Ariel since this show began!!! YAY!!
Okay this episode told us how the curse will be broken by true love's kiss. And I truly beleive that kiss must be the with the person who cast the curse aka the evil queen/regina. I also believe Mr. Gold/Rumple is a good guy and he needed Emma's name to bring here to Storybrooke to break the spell. And Henry is with the queen bc that is the only motivation strong enough to get Emma to stay. Now who could be the Queen's true love that will bring her down....of course that can't happen until the last episode.;)
And I think Rumple thinks the way to break the spell is Emma bring the happy endings to the fairytale characters, bc he does not believe there can be a true loves kiss with the evil queen.
I felt so sorry for his conflict when he and belle kissed..become human again or have the power to fight the queen???????
I hated the Queen for lying to him about Belle being dead. Bad queen!!!!
Could the mysterious write be Rumple's son Bae?
Love this show and Rumple/Mr Gold, any scene he is in is tense. His low almost whisper voice draws me in to listen to every word. Now we're beginning to see the pieces of his history and he is even more fascinating. He could be the biggest hero of the show.
As far as the writers not answering all the questions and leaving gaps, I don't care, I'm just enjoying the ride that is Once Upon a Time.
Re. All the time stuff. Henry is the only one who aged in Storybrooke before Emma came. (Makes it pretty easy for him to figure out something is not right in the town!) Nobody else realized or thought it strange because they are all CURSED. Nobody ages, all memories of 'growing up' or whatever are fake, implanted memories. All of David's memories with Kathryn, for example, are 100% fake as in reality he was in a coma for 28 years -- until Emma came, started time moving again, and he woke up. There is no parallel universe or anything. Fairytale Land exists in flashbacks, it is the past. The curse hit, and everyone was brought to Storybrooke to be unhappy drones until the series started.
As to how Mr. Gold was able to procure Henry for Regina that will be interesting to see. For sure he knew that Henry was the saviour's son (he knew Emma's name, remember), and bringing him to town would bring Emma as well. Man, I want to know what he endgame is.
Very good episode; I was especially pleased to see that a Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum (Jane Espenson) wrote the episode..
I love this show so much, as I do of all the characters. I do wish people would stop complaining about it. After all it is a fairytale where anything can happen, no need to really analize every little thing. I truly enjoyed this episode, Belle and Rumple were so sweet, it was nice to see a soft side to him. I love the way they keep bringing the characters back and continuing their stories. I look forward to every week to see what twists and turns it will make,its great to get away from reality and lose yourself in this fantasy, its fun. So enjoy it, I most certainly do.
I thought it was a very interesting take on the Beauty and the Beast. I was also glad to see Cinderella and her Prince Charming (do they ever have any other name besides Prince Charming in the books :D) make an appearance. While I do enjoy their twists on fairy tales, I wish they would spend some more time on the here and now. I'm also glad that Mary Margaret finally got a clue she's not really in a relationship with David. Their sorta affair demeaned their "true love" so to speak. And as many had pointed out, made David look stupid. I am curious though as to why their kiss didn't break their curse - since the Queen said true love's kiss breaks any curse.
I just love this ep showing Rumpelstiltskin's softer side...but can someone please stick it to the queen!!! I am sick and tired of her getting her way. It may have been over 18 years but since Emma and Henry's been their the people of storybrooke are now waking up and seeing that things aren't normal. They really need to end the Snow/Mary Charming/David story line soon cause its boring....It would be nice to see who's Henry's father. And what happen to the typewriter dude? So many questions and not enough answers.
@Alex: I think Regina DOES know who Emma is, but can't do much about it right now...
I LOVE that they finally confirmed Rumpel's knowledge of his past life. I also agree with other commenter that Once leaves me with a lot of questions...how long have they been in Storybrooke? Doesn't it seem odd to ANYONE that no one ages but Henry? Where DID Henry come from? I hope they tie it up in logical ways...
Belle is my favorite princess and biases aside, I thought this was one of the best episodes of the series. Seeing Rumpelstiltskin as the Beast of Belle showed a lot more about the character than the back story that they did earlier. Or at least, it showed a lot more about the humanity vs the monstrosity of the character.
I also appreciated how Ashley (aka Cinderella) was brought back because it shows that the characters that they show aren't just for one episode but there's continuity there. And it makes me more hopeful that we'll be seeing and learning more about Belle's Storybrooke character in the future. I mean, how can we not knowing that she is the weakness of Mr. Gold / Rumpelstiltskin, right?
And of course, this episode just set up a lot through that conversation between Mr. Gold and Regina. They're both obviously aware of who they are and what that means for the future is endless possibilities.
I really dislike emilie de ravin; shes such an awful actress. and i didnt know there were australians in fairy tale world
P.S. it could be a parallel time line....with only Henry And Emma growing up.
Remember, any time someone asks anyone in Storybrooke a question about that, such as "how did you meet", or whatever, they can't process it, but it doesn't strike them as odd. Whatever is your normal IS normal, so why WOULD they notice that they don't age if NO ONE ages. It's not that much of a stretch to say that they wouldn't notice Henry b/c it seems to me that part of the curse was making them oblivious to the things that would call out the alternate reality. Think about it: unless someone told you and really CONVINCED you you were in the Matrix, would you really see signs everywhere? Of course not.
Mr Gold is a wounded animal right now, and we know all about wounded animals....Regina has been on a role, somethings going to break.
It's hard to believe how truly evil Regina/Queen is.
This is just my take on the time dilemma: I think that time in the fairy-tale world might have been running at a different pace as the rest of the world. Also - do we know how long the people of storybrooke have been in our world? Maybe it isn't 18 years, but shorter. There's still the problem of Henry aging, I admit that I don't have anything to explain that, but I still think that the townspeople have not been in our world for 18 years. (The writers will undoubtedly explain it all eventually.)
Love the kiwi accents on belle.
Shut up Roggio you old complaining candlestick
